Single Skin Fuel Tanks

Single skin fuel tanks are the simplest solution for storing heating oil.

As its name suggests, a single skin oil tank is a tank that holds oil or fuel within one layer (a single skin).

Unlike a bunded oil tank, single skin tanks don’t offer secondary containment – but we can assure you that, as with every product on our website, these are manufactured from top-quality materials and they offer full compliance with the relevant standards and regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can a single skin oil tank be used?

Single skin oil tanks can typically be installed following an oil storage risk assessment.

As a general rule for domestic premises, they cannot legally be installed within 10m of a controlled body of water (i.e. a river, stream, soakaway, or septic tank).

It’s also vital to make sure that single skin fuel tanks aren’t located over a hard surface, or in an area where a spillage could enter a loose-fitting manhole or open drain.

For a single skin tank to be used, the vent pipe needs to be visible from the fill point – otherwise, a bunded oil tank will be required.

Before installing single skin fuel tanks, it’s important to assess any other potential environmental hazards within close proximity, too.

 

How long do single skin fuel tanks last?

Generally, a properly installed and maintained single skin fuel tank can last 15 to 20 years before a replacement will be needed.

The single skin oil tanks for sale at Cotterill Civils are manufactured from medium-density polyethylene (MDPE), which is an insulating material that can offer a degree of protection from external heat.

What’s more, Harlequin single skin fuel tanks are less prone to condensation on the inside – helping to maintain the condition of the fuel being held within.
